Another country for Prianto

France: German software VAD Prianto has opened a new subsidiary near Paris. Prianto France is managed by Jean-Christophe Poncet, the former local channel manager for Netapp. It will initially push 8Man, Macrium, Quest Software, SmartBear Software and TeamViewer products through local VARs and system integrators.

New vendors for API, Michael Telecom, Prianto and Tarox

Germany: broadliner API has expanded its value portfolio with 3CX software PBX. Telephony and mobility specialist Michael Telecom has added Greenlee Communication wireless network testing devices. Software VAD Prianto has inked a distribution deal with local vendor deviceTRUST, which is specialized in remote access secure management solutions. Finally, broadliner and PC assembler Tarox has started the distribution of Unit Technology UPS and Network Box managed security systems (source: Funkschau Deutschland, Telecom Handel Deutschland and CRN Deutschland).

Prianto says US move will boost vendor clout

Virtualisation and security VAD Prianto claims it has gained the upper hand with vendors after launching a US office. Prianto US, based in Denver, is being headed up by Tom Zorn and Fred Green, who sold their previous virtualisation distributor, Alternative Technology, to Arrow in 2006. This means Germany-headquartered Prianto operates in seven territories: Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and now the United States. According to Prianto UK CEO Yuri Pasea, "the addition of a US operation would enable Zorn, Green and their team to seed the US market for European vendors. Prianto US is already working with existing Prianto UK vendor partner Protected Networks as well as others such as Macrium, Allgress or CyberGRC." Protected Networks, a Germany-based access rights management vendor known for its 8Man solution, is extending its pact with Prianto from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom to the US and Germany, with Austria and Switzerland soon to follow.

Prianto GmbH owns a non-controlling share in all the subsidiaries but in the case of Prianto US it has taken an even smaller stake than usual: "In return we have allowed them to use the Prianto name because we feel the benefit of having that name on both the European and US side will give us an advantage with the vendors," Pasea said. "We have some great European technology that Tom and his team would like to bring into the US and, for us, Tom is very well connected in vendorland in the US. It makes sense."

Komsa Systems, ADN, Herweck, Prianto, ENO, TD Maverick, Comline, Acmeo: German distributors are always very active

Germany: infrastructure VAD Komsa Systems has started to train its resellers on Wireshark network and protocol solutions. The VAD has also expanded its catalog with Huawei network products, following a deal between Huawei and its mother company Komsa signed last year for the smartphones of the Chinese vendor. Telephony specialist Herweck is continuing to extend its value offer with the intercom and access control systems from local vendor TCS. Software and security VAD Prianto has inked a partnership with local editor Protected Networks, to distribute its 8Man access right management solutions through its VAR and system integrator network. Mobile phone specialist ENO Telecom has expanded its portfolio with Switel smartphones. Mac specialist Comline has been authorized to distribute Microsoft Surface tablets in the retail market. Cloud VAD Acmeo has been chosen by Slovenian XLab to distribute its ISL Online remote desktop solution in the country. Finally, Reinhold Egenter, who was the manager of AV specialist TD Maverick, has left the distributor. Until a replacement is found, Jörg Lauer, the manager of AutoCAD specialist TD Datech, takes over the role as interim manager. Udo Schillings, who was marketing manager for network and security VAD ADN, has left the distributor to join broadliner API as sales manager for its new value division.

StorMagic signs Prianto as authorised distributor

StorMagic, a software-defined storage company that enables a hyper-converged infrastructure for virtualised environments, has signed software VAD Prianto as authorised distributor in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The announcement builds on the momentum from StorMagic's newly launched channel partner program, its reseller recruitment drive across EMEA and a confirmation by the company's CEO that StorMagic has adopted a 100% indirect sales model – using its partners to fulfill all future orders of SvSAN. The announcement is strategically important to both companies. StorMagic provides Prianto and its channel partners with SvSAN, which eliminates the need for physical SANs and reduces server and software spend by 40%. This enables value added resellers to deliver high availability, simple management and support with the lowest possible total cost of ownership to their customers. In turn StorMagic gains access to a wide network of resellers that specialise in virtualisation technology, promote new and innovative solutions and have a deep localised understanding of StorMagic's key markets.
